Only an estimated 42% of high school teams have access to a Certified Athletic Trainer or trained medical personnel for both games and practices. That means a professional isn’t always present to carefully watch or even administer aid if impacts of concern occur. Even while present, many teams remain under resourced with the correct equipment or staff members to monitor, track, and quantify exposure levels. With data, we can see the unseen, and use trends and patterns to identify where changes can be made within our team to keep athletes safe. Data becomes an extra set of eyes and ears on the field helping all staff members make more informed decisions.
Our mission is to provide Coaches and Athletic Trainers with a data driven approach to improving athlete safety and performance.
For the first time, Team staff can use head-impact data from games and practice to identify players at a greater risk of injury. Using head impact locations, head impact counts, and head impact severity data points, we fully automate actionable reporting helping teams uncover new opportunities within their team. With the Athlete Intelligence Platform, Coaches and Athletic Trainers can receive automated practice and game reports, breaking down the data to identify team, position, and player patterns and improvements.
In the fight against concussions, data is the best defense.
Head-related injuries may occur in almost any sporting activity but become most common in contact and collision sports. Still, no product will prevent, identify,or diagnose if a concussion has been sustained. It is our duty to make sports safer for all who play.
Equipment will evolve, rules will change, and protocols will improve. As we continue to challenge ourselves to get better, the athletes who play the sports we love will benefit.
We help set the new standards for athlete safety by incorporating a data driven approach. Data lets you manage and measure everything that occurs on the field during play and brings a quantitative approach to make more informed decisions.
Athlete Intelligence continues to be platform of choice for many Universities and Research Institutions. As these communities strive to learn more about concussions and causes of head injuries in sports, Athlete Intelligence has become platform of choice as the first data analytics company to provide on-field real time data tracking for helmeted and non helmeted sports. Data is going to help uncover what we can’t see and provide key leanings on trends and outliers of how our athletes perform. You can’t manage what you don’t measure, so data becomes our key to drive safety and performance improvements.
Data is our best resource to help drive decision making.
After 5 years of Research and Development, in 2015 Athlete Intelligence launches their first commercialized product, the VECTOR™ Mouthguard. The VECTOR™ MouthGuard is the first real-time, uninterrupted head-impact monitoring mouthguard providing instant feedback about the impacts sustained by athletes on the field during play. Through years of both lab and on-field testing and validation, Athlete Intelligence becomes the first company to commercialize an impact sensing mouthguard embedded with the technology to accurately and efficiently track actionable head impact data. When paired with the Athlete Intelligence platform, users have a complete visualization of team, position, and athlete’s exposure levels of location, count, and severity for head-related impacts.

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that is caused by a blow to the head or body, a fall or another injury that jars or shakes the brain inside the skull. Although there may be cuts or bruises on the head or face, there may be no other visible signs of a brain injury. Source: WebMD.com
Concussions remain a difficult diagnosis process and require the aid of medical professionals when checking an athlete for symptoms. While no product may be able to prevent, diagnose, or identify a concussion, risk can still be mitigated by ensuring athletes are using proper technique, removing head from contact, and are removed from play if concerns of big impacts have occurred.
FACT : MORE THAN 3.8 MILLION CONCUSSIONS AND SPORTS BRAIN INJURIES OCCUR EACH YEAR.
What do many professional hockey players, professional football players and professional fighters have in common?
Over the course of their careers, they’ve all suffered from a concussion or multiple concussions. In some cases, their injuries abruptly ended their playing career.
But professional athletes are not the only players susceptible to concussion.
FACT : 250 THOUSAND CONCUSSIONS OCCUR IN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL EACH YEAR.
Any athlete – especially those who participate in collision sports like football, hockey and lacrosse – can sustain a concussion. However, collision sports athletes are not the only ones susceptible to sports brain injury. Concussions have been reported in players from many different types of sports, including boxing, soccer, BMX, softball, cheerleading, diving and more.
Concussions don’t just occur in games, either. Anytime an athlete suits up, for practice or performance testing, they’re at risk.
FACT : 300 THOUSAND OF THESE SPORTS BRAIN INJURIES WILL RESULT IN A LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS.
WebMD.com states that you don’t have to pass out (lose consciousness) to sustain a concussion. Some people will have obvious symptoms of a concussion, such as passing out or forgetting what happened right before the injury. But other people won’t.
According to this University of Pittsburgh study, concussions can often cause major, long-term brain impairments in information-processing speed, problem solving, planning and memory. In simpler terms, concussions can destroy your brain’s ability to function normally.
These impairments are worse with multiple concussions.
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Delayed verbal and/or motor response
- Confusion and/or difficulty concentrating
- Slurred and/or incoherent speech
- Ringing in the ears
- Inability to remember recent or past events
- Loss of consciousness
- Sleep disturbances
- Photophobia (sensitivity to light)
- Sensitivity to loud noises
Athlete Intelligence is leading the revolution in the fight against head-related injuries in contact and collision sports.
